We tried out Saucebox based on our hotel's recommendation and were not disappointed. We stuck to small plates and enjoyed basically Asian fusion tapas. Very popular at happy hour.

Saucebox was perfect for our last dinner in Portland. The decor is modern and elegant and noise level was pleasantly quiet. Our server, Tim, was very friendly and impressively knowledgeable about the food scene in Portland. We had the salmon and Korean baby back ribs. Both were very well-prepared, perfectly seasoned and delicious. The brussel sprout appetizer was good but... More

We stopped in because we were hungry not really knowing what we were stepping into. It was a mix of a lot of things - Thai, the tropics, a fusion of rocking music and a dark bar scene. A place you would expect to be packed on a Friday night I digress. We were there for dinner. I ordered the... More

Wandering around downtown snacking--stopped in for a bite here, again. This place has really good cocktails--hard to beat em. Tonite tho it was Sapporo to go with the veggie tempura, cucumber salad and lettuce cups. Fresh, healthy and good. Server was helpful--service was quick-food was good.

I went here to celebrate my birthday. The restaurant looks very unassuming from the outside, but stepping through the threshold was like walking into another fun and exotic world.

I'm a fan of the neighbourhood, and Saucebox had an interesting looking menu, so we stopped in for dinner last night. They took us to the wrong table initially, not a big deal, then seated us by the window. They were willing to switch out chairs so that I could have a more comfortable one. Our waiter was very attentive... More
